For me Backchannels is my clear favourite, also a fan of Filaments as well

Glass Bones reminds me of Pushing The River from Animal Joy, mostly due to the guitar. It's my favourite song on AJ so I have no complaints.

This is a fine album but for now my least favorite going all the way back to Palo Santo. The electronic embellishments are nice but don't add all that much. Seems to lack a bit of energy compared to Animal Joy.

My copy is going to take 2-4 weeks fucking Amazon.ca.

Oh well, I downloaded a copy to tide me over. Still loving this album, right now I would rank the albums so:

1. The Golden Archipelago
2. Animal Joy
3. Jet Plane & Oxbow
4. Rook
5. Palo Santo
6. Fellow Travelers

Pale Kings is the new song I'm enjoying most at the moment.

Shearwater: Jet Plane and Oxbow | Album Reviews | Pitchfork

7.5 seems a little low considering how positive the review sounds but this is Pitchfork so whatever...

Shearwater - The Golden Archipelago

Right now, I put this a notch below Animal Joy but above Golden Archipelago. Really digging it.

Only Child has also stood out for me, along with Filaments.

Great album, this new one.

Is anybody else getting a big Heartland vibe from Backchannels? No wonder that's my favourite from the record.
